Rate: 5 Stars!!!

Destiny is pre-determined. It is strictly monitored. It is unchangeable.Or is it?
Madden’s life is a whirlwind of privilege and perks. Born into the elite Purple ring, she is fated to be a Minister of the Seven. Although her position comes with the burden of great responsibility, she’s nothing if not confident in her future. After all, Destiny Specialists have determined how she will fulfill her life's purpose, and they are never wrong.
Her classmate Dax, an Ash, is clinging to the opposite end of the spectrum. While everyone around her knows what destiny awaits them, Dax’s fate is…missing. Isolated and ignored, she refuses to let her lack of status define her.
After a stunning twist of fate, Dax and Madden’s paths intertwine in ways neither could have possibly imagined. The two are forced to question their own past, present and future as they realize who they are is not necessarily who they were meant to be.
ASH, the first book in the Destined series, is an unforgettable journey into an alternate future which will leave readers wondering just how much we can control our own fate.
Destiny is calling. Will you fight for yours?

Hooked after the first page!!! So excited about this trilogy!! Reminded me of divergent. Ash is the lowest ring of this post "event" society that is divided into 7 color groups. One of the main characters, Dax, is an Ash because as a baby she was told her destiny was blank. I knew right away something was up with these "blanks"! I loved all the twist...who could Dax trust and who could she not! And the relationships that evolved in this first book...Wow! I will be first in line to read the next book in this trilogy! I give it 5 stars!!!!

“Petroff and Manley have created a world where fate is terrifyingly unpredictable when entrusted to the wrong hands. Addictive and fast-paced, ASH will pull readers along for the ride and leave them anxious for the next installment.”
-JOELLE CHARBONNEAU, New York Times bestselling author of THE TESTING trilogy

“ASH is a breakneck thriller filled with action and romance. Destined for bestseller lists, it’s perfect for fans of Divergent and The Hunger Games.”
-MICHELLE GAGNON, author of the PERSEFONE trilogy
